Bombshell IG report: Airport screening machines CANNOT be TRUSTED!

Any airline passengers who’ve taken off shoes, removed belts and posed electronically naked for TSA agents in America’s airports might be infuriated to find this out:

Those screening machines guarding the nation’s air travel might not work at all.

An alarming report released by Homeland Security revealed that bomb screening equipment used in U.S. airports might not be operational due to ineffective maintenance by the Transportation Security Authority.

“The TSA is not properly managing the maintenance of its airport screening equipment,” the Office of Inspector General said.

“Specifically, TSA has not issued adequate policies and procedures to airports for carrying out equipment maintenance-related responsibilities. Because TSA does not adequately oversee equipment maintenance, it cannot be assured that routine preventive maintenance is performed or that equipment is repaired and ready for operational use.

“Consequently, the safety of airline passengers and aircraft could be jeopardized.”

On “Your World” with host Neil Cavuto Wednesday, aviation consultant Michael Boyd said the debacle is a sign America’s in “deep trouble.”

Boyd said the mismanagement and lack of accountability within the TSA is more dangerous than defective machinery designed to keep passengers safe. He said the report findings would be worse “if the security really meant anything, because a terrorist wouldn’t be bothered by it” anyway.

“This is not a deterrent to anybody. A real terrorist is not going to try to bring something through screening, as they did not do on 9/11. It’s the backdoors of our airports,” Boyd said.

This is not the first time the TSA has come under fire for ineffective screening procedures.

In 2013, for example, Homeland Security found the TSA’s behavior-detection program to essentially be ineffective. The program at the time involved only 2,800 workers and cost a massive $878 million, according to USA Today.

The libertarian CATO Institute has called for the privatization of the TSA which had 62,000 union employees in 2013 and an annual budget of $7.9 billion.

According to the latest report, TSA’s neglected security equipment has cost taxpayers $1.2 billion.
